Organic Schoolyard Food Production

Over the last 8 years, Agrarian Adventure has been instrumental in creating and sustaining a bountiful and diverse school garden at Tappan Middle School in Ann Arbor, which is utilized primarily as an educational resource for the school and community.

As part of these efforts, our organization coordinated the construction of a large, production-style, passive solar greenhouse to extend the growing season and maximize student and classroom involvement throughout the school year.

During the 2010-2011 academic year, our organization acquired a variety of fruit trees and coordinated students at the school to plant the trees, creating a fruit tree orchard alongside the greenhouse and garden.

We work in close partnership with Tappan Middle School and the Ann Arbor Public Schools in SE Michigan to ensure that the garden & greenhouse continue to serve as an educational resource for students, teachers, and community members within the district.

One way you can help is my making a small monthly donation – $20 for example. And don’t forget all donations are tax-deductible.
